If your son will be playing football this upcoming season, we’d like to invite you to join the Dunwoody Football Moms Club. We will be having an important first meeting on Monday, April 27, at 6:30 PM. For details click on the Dunwoody Wildcat Football link below:
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Carey Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Matthias Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching willfulness; Frank Troy (Tom Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Michael Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor. This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.
Note from Audra: I had a disagreement with my 7th grader about this a few months ago when helping him proof a paper. So…when I ran across the blog post I thought I would DIE laughing. I thought some of you may enjoy this…
(Before I start, I should mention that I am over 40, so I can make fun of the over 40. So there.)
I learned to type in 1987 on an IBM Selectric typewriter. A typewriter, not a computer. We had those, but they had big, actually floppy disks and honest to God, no one had any idea what to do with them. My semester of typing remains one of the most valuable classes I ever took in high school — I can still dazzle small children with my ability to make words appear on a screen by just spazzing my fingers out on the keyboard.
But one rule from typing class has definitely expired, and if you’re over 40, it’s possible that no one has given you the message. Here it is: Read More »

The Pre-Kindergarten Program is funded by the Georgia State Lottery and is considered to be one of the finest educational programs in the nation. The school system currently serves over 2,200 four year olds each year. However, there are always more children seeking spaces in PreK than there are seats available, and for that reason the school district uses a lottery process as the fairest method of filling classes. Every elementary school in the DeKalb County School District, except for Kittredge, has at least one PreK class. Each class has a maximum class size of 22 children.
Pre-K registration for possible participation in 2015-2016 Pre-K program will take place on Friday, April 17, 2015. Parents must register at their home school between the Read More »

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It’s a great tale that somehow covers motherhood, friendship, kindergarten drama, domestic violence, date rape, and a murder mystery all into what is a sometimes light and sometimes dark but always fantastic story. I want to be friends with all three of the main characters…actually I can see many of their characteristics in the women I know and love in Dunwoody! The kindergarten drama stuff is so comical but also sad. As a mom who is well past the kindergarten stage I can now look back and laugh about kindergarten drama but remember like yesterday how significant EVERYTHING seems to a Mama who’s baby just started big school. I’ve now enjoyed three titles by this same author so am going to now add all the rest of her books to my “to read” pile! I can also recommend The Husband’s Secret & What Alice Forgot.
We are looking for claustrophobic, boxed-in living spaces that desperately need to be opened up and made over. From living rooms, to dens, to dining rooms and enclosed patios, we are searching the greater Atlanta area for families who are at their wit’s end with their home’s senseless floor plan.

Red Envelope Tribute to the 2015 Dunwoody High School Graduates
Note from Audra: “Shhhh it’s a secret. Well, sort of. Many Seniors already know about this because it is a long standing tradition and a ton of them have older siblings or older friends who’ve told them. However, this is not openly discussed with the kids so don’t mention it to them. If you want to participate just write a letter secretly, following the instructions below!”
It is a tradition at Dunwoody High School to give relatives, friends and special teachers the opportunity to honor Graduating Seniors. Read More »
